A: Very clear, with a dark golden color that at the same time is light orange. Head is not quite white. Visible carbonation the entire time I drink it.

S: Citrusy, kind of like grapefruit. Probably from the cascade.

T: Fruity, floral, and spicy. Mild levels of bitterness at first because of the beer's smoothness; eventually made into high ones by it's aftertaste.

M: Flavor makes it a very clean tasting beer.

O: Probably my favorite year-round beer by Great Lakes Brewing Company. While I do enjoy Chillwave Double IPA and especially Lake Erie Monster much more; ignoring this beer or not giving it an excellent review makes no sense to me. I don't know of too many fresh, unique tasting, and 7.5% ABV IPA's I can find here in Ohio that are $8.99 for a 6-pack. Thanks Great Lakes. Keep up the good work.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A: Clear, Deep golden/ light orange, with a 1 finger off-white head. Ample Carbonation.
S: Lovely hoppy smell of pine, mandarin orange, berry, and tropical fruits, especially pineapple. Slight bubblegum scent.
T: The fruity flavor of the hops gives the brew a sweet, orange flavor up front. A bitterness made evermore evident by slightly toasted malts provides the body of the flavor. Sharp flavors prick the tongue and add complexity to the ale. Malts play a back role to the hops, but give a solid foundation. Slight aftertaste.
M: Medium mouthfeel. Not overly oily.
O: A great offering from Great Lakes Brewing. Very flavorful and complex. Better EIPA than Harpoon, and with a higher ABV, which is nice.
